    Changing valves

    Hey,

    can someone tell me if you need sea-doo's - valve spring compresser,- and --compresser cup for about $165 dollars OR if the $49 dollar valve spring compresser from sumitt is just as good? Thanks for your input.

    The sea doo one is very bulky and heavy.
    The Riva would be better than seadoo.
    Haven't tried Summitt.

    the big "C" clamp style works fine. the type that hooks into the coil of the spring may not, not enough room.
